Today, in music…

Today, September 19th 1970, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Diana Ross was #1 on U.S. music charts.

The word “ain’t” is very common in musical lyrics, but it is not considered proper English. It substitutes the negative auxiliary verbs “isn’t” and “aren’t” but educated people do not use this. It is so common in music only because it has 1 syllable. “isn’t” and “aren’t” have two. In correct English, the title of this song would be, “There aren’t any mountains high enough.”

But you knew that, didn’t you?
